I woke up this morning feeling good. I exercised pretty hard yesterday and that usually helps me sleep better. Had coffee with a spoonful of Laird Superfood Coconut Creamer. Trying to replace my dairy milk and so far I like this the best. Did my TRP (think, read, plan) time with my coffee and then some light gardening to get outside and move around a little. I’m trying intermittent fasting a couple of days a week so I waited until 10am to make my smoothie.
Computer time. We are visiting my son Bronson this summer in Brazil and there is still lots to plan out. The three phases of a trip are so much fun. First there’s the planning of the trip, the actual trip, and then talking about the trip when it’s done. I’m having a challenge focusing on the computer for long lengths of time. When I was working, for long or complicated projects I would use the Pomodoro technique which I now find very helpful at home with PD.
There is a terrific public swimming pool in the neighborhood so I drove down there and did this lower body routine that I watched on Dominique Sachse’s YouTube channel. For lunch I had canned sardines, brown rice, and moms homemade kim chi. Healthy and delicious, but the fridge is a little bare so I went to the grocery store and dropped off books at the library. One of the books I returned was called Wild Food Plants of Hawaii. I went on a foraging class last month and it’s so interesting to learn about the different plants all around us that are edible.
Dinner was very simple, sauteed thinly sliced pork chops with a greek salad. For dessert I usually have three prunes. Maybe not the best time to talk about it but since PWP many times need help staying regular, my formula is I put psyllium husk in my morning smoothie, take a probiotic, and eat 3 prunes every day, and for me it works great.
A little TV and then finished reading Elizabeth is Missing. It’s a novel about a woman named Maud, whose memory is fading, but thinks her best friend Elizabeth is missing and no one will acknowledge it. It’s suspenseful and I can’t wait to read how it ends. I usually fall asleep listening to a podcast either about books or classic films. My favorites right now are Currently Reading and You Must Remember This. I’m thankful for another day and hope yours went well. Have a good night.
